College Career Night a Hit at Touro College GST May 14, 2015

NoMad, Manhattan
College Career Night a Hit at Touro College GST, Manhattan, New York

On April 29thTouro College Graduate School of Technology held a career night as part of its comprehensive career services program whose aim is preparing its graduate students to enter the job market or to better their current positions. Steven Schwartz, a business communications professor at Fordham University, provided Touro graduate students with helpful tips and advice for navigating some of the challenges that they face in their professional careers.

With 60 graduate students in attendance, this career-focused event had a packed house. For two and a half hours, students listened to Schwartz deliver useful advice about anticipating employers’ needs, understanding the value of solid networking techniques, and being a top-notch interviewee. One of Touro’s main goals in hosting this event was to give students a boost in confidence as they discover who they are as professionals in their field and what they want out of a career.

But this career night also taught them something else: that landing a job takes a lot more than having the right skills. At length, Schwartz discussed why attitude, personal expression, fashion sense, and even physical mannerisms matter. He also emphasized the importance of making allies in the field and exploring unlikely avenues for getting a foot in the door.

One other point of emphasis during this event was how companies determine whether a candidate is a good fit for a role. Schwartz made sure to point out that hiring managers take stock of more than just a resume and even included insights from real life decision-makers. All in all, students who attended this seminar walked away with a much better sense of their own strengths, weaknesses, and areas that need improvement.
